Limited Capacity filling up

Most of us are looking for euphoric and mind- expanding experiences and have found that drugs and alcohol are the fast tracks to to something similar. We see how these substances also numb certain undesirables feelings ( depression, shyness,disappointment.)

This workshop will use Ayurvedic and yogic concepts to understand why we get attracted to things such as drugs, sex, shopping, information and drama. We will learn how yogic techniques and an ayurvedic lifestyle will support and transport us beyond normal states of awareness, and help us to replace the negative and draining habits that prevent us from truly being free. Part lecture , introduction to ayurveda and basic yoga philosophy. Part practice with asana (postures), pranayama, and kriyas (cleansing techniques).
